Defined by a regex can can be swaped in and out.

A user could type

closes #1, fixes #5
Autocomplete will fire upon a regex that sniffs 'closes' & 'fixes' - other
terms could also be used - just list them in the regex.
> whole user name thing to pull the users 'tickets'
I have to say that this would be an AWESOME addition - but hell it would be
I think that it is the job of the issue tracker to supply a 'report' which
can be called upon - how?
What comes to mind is the idea of an 'issue-query abstraction layer' -
follow class factory pattern.
*you* would define an interface, that an 'issue-implementation' class would
implement, and code the class factory.
And *we* can code for a specific issue tracker - supply a 'report' &
issue-implementation class that will turn that report into something useful
by TSVN.
That would take all the pressure off you to code up for every single issue
tracker out there.
<C# pseudo code> 
/* interface that defines what we are going to do with issues */
public interface IIssueQuery {
	Issue[] GetUsersIssues(string user);
	Issue[] GetUsersIssues(string user, string password);
/* class that defines an issue */
public class Issue {...}
/* an issue factory class that calls the appropriate
 * issue implementation class
public class IssueQueryFactory : IIssueQuery
	public Issue[] GetUsersIssues(...) {
	/* code to find out the type of 
	 * 'issue-implementation' class 
	 * were using, make the call return
	 * string array of details
/* a set of issue-implementation classes that
 * can talk to a specific issue-tracker
class TracIssueQuery : IIssueQuery {
	public Issue[] GetUsersIssues(...) {
	/* code that will talk to the trac issue tracker
	 * mabye run a specific report to pull the information
class ZillaIssueQuery : IIssueQuery {...}
</C# pseudo code>
